Reviews for the Dell XPS 15 9570 Core i9 UHD
After checking out the Core i5 and Core i7 SKUs, we're now finally ready to benchmark the Core i9 version of the XPS 15 9570. In short, users are better off investing in more storage, RAM, or faster graphics than to plop down an additional $250+ for the Core i9-8950HK.

The Dell XPS 15 is essentially a wolf disguised as a sheep. It comes kitted with all the top end components. The performance of the laptop is in the very top rung of non-gaming laptops and even in comparison to some gaming machines, the XPS 15 can hold its own. It offers a display that’s brilliant for content creators and content consumers alike, but the glossy finish might put some people off. We do feel that a singular Thunderbolt 3.0 port is not enough, especially seeing how the ZenBook Pro 15 offers two Thunderbolt 3.0 ports in addition to the HDMI 2.0 port. The XPS 15 is a great laptop for a large variety of power users, but overkill for those who aren’t into gaming or content creation.

I've always loved Dell's XPS 15 lineup, as I'm always willing to sacrifice battery life for more power. I'm never that far from a power outlet anyway. If that sounds like you, then the XPS 15 is your dream machine.
